HMD releases Nokia 3 kernel source code

Wednesday, May 16th, 2018

HMD Global has released the source code for the Nokia 3. The 3 has become the fourth phone in Nokia's lineup to have its kernel source released, following the 1 and 6, as well as the rather late 8, last month.

The source code allows developers to much more easily build custom software, and it's definitely nice to see. With that being said, HMD still hasn't unlocked any of the Nokia devices' bootloaders, making the source code a lot less useful than it should be.

Wednesday, April 11th, 2018

HMD Global has a stellar track record of releasing timely Android firmware updates and its good form continues today. Nokia 3 owners can expect Android 8.0 Oreo to start rolling out to their devices shortly. At the same time, a new page has appeared on the Nokia website providing kernel source code for the Nokia 1 and 6.

Juho Sarvikas, the Chief Product Officer at HMD, has been a great ambassador for the company and its commitment to near-stock Android with fast updates.

Nokia starts beta testing Android Oreo 8.0 for the Nokia 3

Monday, February 26th, 2018

Android Oreo has been trickling down Nokia's lineup starting with the Nokia 8, and now finally reaching one of the lower-end devices: the Nokia 3. We already knew the device was slated to get Oreo, but that news goes as far back as September. In phone years, that's an eternity where owners of the 3 had to sit and chew on their Nougat 7.1.1 as more expensive devices got the chocolate cookie treatment before them.

Monday, September 11th, 2017

It might not be available in the US just yet, but HMD Global is already preparing to update the entry-level Nokia 3 to Android 7.1.1. The phone launched with Android 7.0 Nougat, which isn't too shabby, but 7.1.1 will bring with it a few new features.

Nokia 3, 5, 6, and 8 will get Android 8.0 Oreo

Monday, September 4th, 2017

The recent Nokia-branded phones from HMD Global have been pretty popular. The goal of a near-stock Android ROM with quick updates has also caused Android enthusiasts to take notice, especially as many budget phones don't receive major updates at all.

While HMD Global has been quick with smaller updates, like Android 7.1, the real test comes with major Android upgrades. Juho Sarvikas, the Chief Product Officer at HMD Global, tweeted earlier today that the entire Nokia lineup will receive Oreo.

Nokia 3 comes out mostly-victorious in JerryRigEverything’s test

Thursday, August 24th, 2017

Nokia and HMD Global have been pretty good so far with building durable Android phones. The Nokia 6, the first Nokia-branded Android phone, has a very good build quality (especially for the price). JerryRigEverything, the YouTube channel famous for testing the limits of various electronics, has revealed how much of a beating the Nokia 3 can take.

If you're not familiar with it, the Nokia 3 is the lowest-end model of Nokia/HMD's Android lineup.

Nokia 3 will be updated to 7.1.1 by the end of August

Monday, July 31st, 2017

It might not be available in the US just yet, but HMD Global is already preparing to update the entry-level Nokia 3 to Android 7.1.1. The phone launched with Android 7.0 Nougat, which isn't too shabby, but 7.1.1 will bring with it a few new features. If this is a predictor of future software support, customers that pick up one of the new Nokia Android phones may have a lot to look forward to. 

The news was released a couple days ago via a tweet from Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer at HMD Global, which licenses the Nokia name to produce Android phones.

As I'm sure many of you know, HMD Global became the exclusive licensee of Nokia in 2016, and released the Nokia 6 in China earlier this year. At Mobile World Congress, two more models were announced - the Nokia 5 and 3. Starting today, Nokia/HMD has begun selling all three phones in India.
